Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Physicians need tools in the exam room to help patients understand the rationale for ordering, delaying or not performing a test. Clinical decision support (CDS) enables clinicians to quickly and confidently determine appropriate imaging at the point of care. This allows physicians to provide higher quality patient care at a lower cost. Overuse and inappropriate use of many imaging tests may cause harm by unnecessarily exposing patients to excess radiation, can impact patient outcomes when incidental findings are over-diagnosed and increase health care costs. Ordering appropriate imaging with time constraints and when the evidence to support the decision isn’t easily accessed can be challenging for many physicians. This module provides physicians the clinical decision support tools needed to select the right imaging test for the right reason at the right time.
